Not sure Brady or Manning would have ever done that. The thing is the Cowboys are your team and if your happy with him then that's cool. I think its great you support the team you love. enjoy the rest of season.
Nah, you've got me wrong. I am never happy with my team. No genuine Cowboys fan is ever happy with them. I'm just saying, Romo isn't the best quarterback in the league by a long shot but (a) since he's been the starter they've never really had the option of getting a better one and (b) he's not what keeps the team from winning. A team could definitely win a super bowl with Romo if you could get the rest of the team together. He gets scapegoated because most people don't know anything else about the team. That's part of being a quarterback and that's fine, but it's not really accurate. The team is dysfunctional, and if I had to blame one person it would be an easy choice to make: Jerry Jones, the one person who can't be fired. This team has been the same kind of mess for the last 15 years through several coaching and personnel changes because their celebrity owner/gm/Papa John's pitchman won't hire a competent GM and interferes with coaching and player decisions nonstop. I'm afraid this once great franchise won't be winning any championships until he sells the team (unlikely) or dies.
